Karraker, Oliver and Siriwardane Make Us Proud
Mohigan basketball players Jamie Karraker, John Oliver and Emil Siriwardane have done it again. They each placed to go to the regional math field day at Bridgeport with Jamie Karraker winning it all. What is amazing is that Jamie is only a sophomore. All three excel in the classroom and work hard to do it. On Monday night John Oliver stayed up until 2:30 studying for a biology exam, said Coach Hoffman. These boys earn their grades and keep up with our demanding schedule. They are what Mohigan basketball is all about. Good students, good kids, good hoop players.
Below is the little bit of press received in the Dominion Post.
